“L’Inverno E L’Aquilone” reviews and feedback

998494_10153131966681256_6681260676067162192_n

Two months after its release, we can only humbly thanks all friends who supported us by buying the De Luxe or the standard cd editions of “L’Inverno E L’Aquilone” and for sending us such amazing feedbacks…Someone said our album could represent a neo folk milestone in a period of time without great other releases in our musical niche, and we are nothing but proud of it!
We also got some amazing review and felt it was about time to prepare a short summary with some selected quotes…And here we go!
“A due anni di distanza da “Le fiabe dei ragni funamboli”, gli Albireon ritornano con una nuova gemma neofolk che, pur subendo l’influenza delle sonorità di mostri sacri come Forseti ed Of The Wand and the Moon, con il suo approccio genuino riesce a creare il suo spazio e collocarsi tra le migliori uscite del genere” (Rosa Selvaggia – January 2016)
“Prevalgono le affinità con il contingente germanico, con cui condividono inflessioni volentieri crepuscolari, come subito attesta l’ottima accoppiata iniziale costituita dal brano che battezza la raccolta e da Sentioeri Di Crinale, che pure non rinuncia a bell’impeto (…) Altrettanto efficace è l’immediatezza lirica di Costellazioni e Nel Regno Di Erevlost (…) e l’ispirata Through Winter Fires” 7/10 (Paolo Bertoni – Blow Up Magazine March 2016)
“I liked the album after the first listen, at least the first six songs. Nice catchy melodies, a charming atmosphere and an honesty that I felt throughout my whole body in each and every second of this album. But something was missing. (…) But then “Kezia” came and I shivered for the first time. Apparently nothing new under the sun: acoustic guitar, voice and a simple keyboard melody. But what a mood they managed to create, intensified by strange noises in the background and distorted, desperate screams in the second half of the song.” (Santa Sangre Magazine – March 2016)
“Albireon estende la sua poetica oltre la semplice codifica neo folk psichedelica abbracciando melodie quasi battistiane (Gli Aironi) e ricavando suggestive arie cameristiche o arcaico ambientali(…) Intenso intimismo” 7/10 (Stefano Morelli – Rumore Nr. 289 Febbraio 2016)
“Un folk chitarristico e ricamato con tastiere ed effetti, tra Forseti e Pilori, Sol Invictus e Nebelung; nelle brume di un’Europa melanconica, rispetto al passato “L’Inverno E L’Aquilone” si propone in vesti più rappresentative del neofolk classico, portatori di un background corposo, amati non solo dalla loro Emilia, espansi in tutta un’Europa che non si nasconde dietro il velo dell’apparenza ma della sostanza.” (Sounds Behind The Corner – January 2016)
“L’Inverno e l’Aquilone è un arcobaleno di generi musicali: sperimentazioni, rumori, cantautorato, neofolk e venature pop continuano a sbocciare e a mischiarsi in un crescente unico. Le stesse emozioni comunicate ricordano le stagioni di mezzo, come l’autunno, dove momenti malinconici e nostalgici si fondono con vortici di colori, speranza e l’attesa di nuove primavere.” (Impatto Sonoro – Marzo 2016)
“Ascolti L’inverno e l’aquilone e ti si serra lo stomaco, per la sua capacità di riportare alla luce gioie intime che la nostra memoria cela con cura in qualche anfratto dello spirito, gelosa custode di un Valore che la contemporaneità stenta a riconoscere.” (Ver Sacrum – Febbraio 2016)

“Through Winter Fires” new song 2015

We are proud to introduce a new song as a preview of the new album “L’Inverno E L’Aquilone”: enjoy!

THROUGH WINTER FIRES
We slept with butterflies in our hands
By morning they were gone
We dreamt daughters through autumn’s rain
By summer they came

I have been in camp sundown
With all my deepest hopes
I saw you in camp sundown
Catching dragonflies on the gravel road
Dreamt of you dancing barefoot in my childood’s fields
Dreamt of you my love playing hide and seek

Sometimes I wonder when we stopped dreaming
I wonder who will bring us flowers
Sometimes I wonder why
We are passing through winter’s fires
Through Winter fires
Through winter fires
Through winter fires
